For your vision of a modern regional school finally realized; for the
pleasures and privileges that have been ours in attending this school;
we, the first graduating class of Silver Lake Regional High School, heartily
thank you and the members of your committee. In your honor, Mr.
Chester T. Ray, we dedicate the first edition of The Torch.
Mr. Ray graduated from Brockton High School in 1925 and began his
study of education at Bridgewater State Teacher's College. After gradu-
ating with a Bachelor's Degree in education in 1929, he began his
teaching career at Hanover High School for one year, then transferred
to the Oakdale Junior High School in Dedham, Massachusetts, for four
years. During this period he obtained his Master's Degree from Boston
His position as principal of various schools for twelve years gave him
excellent experience for the responsibility, which he undertook in 1946,
as Superintendent of Schools in Charlemont, Hawley, Heath, and Rowe.
We are very fortunate in having Mr. Ray as our Superintendent.

At the dedication exercises for the Silver Lake Regional High School last
September, the statement was made that we have a fine building but
it is not yet a school. My reply to this statement was that I would do every-
thing in my power to make it a fine school administratively. Actually, it
is the student body and faculty who make the school.
The seniors have been establishing Silver Lake tradition this year— other
classes will want to emulate what has been done. The standards have
been high and all of us on the staff are pleased that the groundwork for
a fine school has been established. Our underclassmen must start here with
the foundation of a fine school and make it finer.
To the seniors— Congratulations on a job well started and best wishes
for a future of outstanding progress as individuals in whatever field of
endeavor you have chosen.
CHESTER T. RAY
"He who hath a trade, hath a legacy." These words of Benjamin
Franklin, written in colonial days, are more true today than ever before.
At Silver Lake these words might well be inscribed over the doorway
to the section known as the vocational department. Here we have
established this special opportunity for our students to make for them-
selves the legacy mentioned by Franklin in his prophetic phrase.
May the first seniors to graduate from the Silver Lake Regional
Vocational High School, short though their course may have been, give
example to those to follow. Our aim is to provide trade training
as part of the high school course offering. Our hope is that each
graduating class brings this aim nearer to reality.
FRANCIS M. MORAN
Director, Vocational School
The school year 1955-1956 has been a most notable one. The memories
that I have and the memories that you have of this school year may differ
somewhat in detail and intensity but, because we have shared the ex-
periences of a new high school and of a first graduating class our memories
To those of you I have known for many years, and to those of you
whose friendship I have but recently come to know and share, I wish you
every success in life. May I remind you of your class motto: "In His Footsteps
We Will Follow." With such endeavor and high purpose in life you can-
not help but reflect honor on your school, your townspeople, and your-
selves. So may it be!

Had not a single flaw.

cess. Another dance of the same sort was held on March 23 . . .

"Who hath a book
Hath friends at hand,
And gold and gear
At his command ..."
The first Library Club of Silver Lake Regional High
School had a treYnendous beginning with over fifty new
members attending. The students showed a great deal
of enthusiasm in this organization which held some-
thing new for many of them— a Book Fair. Its first year
at Silver Lake proved very successful. Several members
gave book reviews to the lower grades of the four
towns in order to stimulate interest in better books.
Our advisor, Miss Taber, always helped in planning
programs for our monthly meetings. These added sparks
gave interest to the meetings.

Early in February the Silver Lake National Honor Society, supervised by Mrs.
Opachinski, held an impressive, candlelight ceremony in the Little Theatre. Mem-
bers from the Plymouth Honor Society officially inducted our students into the
Silver Lake Chapter. Pins and membership cards were presented to the new
members by Mr. Lloyd M. Creighton. After the ceremony refreshments were
served to the parents and friends.
It is the purpose of this group to carry on the ideals of Scholarship, Character,
Leadership, and Service.
Light is the symbol of hope and the flaming torch of the National Honor So-
ciety serves as a beacon for all students.

What better way to start the year than with the Holly Hop! It was co-sponsored
by the cheerleaders, and everyone had a great time . . . Our second money-
making scheme of the year was the ingeniuous idea of selling refreshments at the
home basketball games . . . We went on from that to a Valentine's party in
February. What fun! . . . "The show must go on!" was our cry this spring. (I
wonder how cold it really is in 'them thar hills.') . . . Our trip to Boston to see
a play marked the end of another successful year with a lot of fun for all.

The Student Council has been a very active group throughout these
past two school years in trying to organize the student body of Silver
Lake and solve problems which often arise in the first year of a new
school. With helpful advisement from Mr. Barham and the assistance of
Mr. Creighton, the Student Council has made very important decisions
concerning the school and the students.
Four representatives and four delegates attended the fall convention
at Cohasset. A suggestion box was set up in the Principal's outer office
for all the students to use. The council is ready at each meeting to dis-
cuss the suggestions and take action if they are considered useful. Book
covers were sold by the council in order to raise money for the spring
convention which was held at Silver Lake on April 5, 1956. The conven-
tion was a great success with Major Daniel James from Otis Air Force
Base as the guest speaker. There were about 500 students attending
from all over South Eastern Massachusetts.

Here are the future sharpshooters of S.L.R.H.S. The year
started off with a bang under the able leadership of Mr.
Bernath. Attention was attracted to the club at the Book
Fair by presenting a display which consisted of a collection
of various guns and animal skins. Since then we have learned
the proper positions for shooting, use of the sling, and how
to properly site a gun within the width of a pencil. Now
we are looking forward to our own rifle range and contests
with other schools.

With our first game in only a few weeks we settled right down to business.
Three main things had to be decided . . . Our advisor— we chose Miss Erickson,
whom we couldn't have managed without . . . Our uniforms— "what style?"
"what color?" "what money?" After a search for material we finally bought bright
red wool flannel, and from that time on the Silver Lake cheerleaders were tem-
porary seam-stresses . . . But then— where to practice? "Music room? balcony?
lunchroom??" It never was definitely decided.
We opened the season with a very successful pep rally attended by the entire
school and closed with new ideas, lots of spirit and very proud to have supported
our wonderful team.

The first football team at Silver Lake Regional High School had only two
league games. Although we lost both of them the feeling of gridiron competition
was felt in the lower grades of the school, proving that in future years, Silver
Lake would be a strong power in the local and distant football leagues.
On opening day of practice there were fifty boys trying out, and only thirty
uniforms were available. After a few weeks of preparation for our plunge into
the first game, we voted for our co-captains. The results were Dennis Balboni and
At the end of the season there were twenty-six boys on the squad, who will
be able to remember the bangs and bruises they received in their first organized
After graduation there will be twelve lettermen left for next year's team, being
led by co-captains James Wills and Edward Angus.

The combined schools produced a fine team this year with many experienced
players. The team chose fine co-captains, Dennis Balboni, and Bob Johnson.
Overcoming a lack of height Silver Lake gave a very impressive account of itself
when Dave Glass sank a one-hander with only a few seconds to give us a 43-41
win over Hingham and start the season off with a bang. The following games were
also filled with many thrills in the closing seconds of the final periods. Our suc-
cessful season comprised of ten wins and four losses was climaxed by our en-
trance in both the South Shore and Tech Tourneys, where we proved that we were
definitely a second-half team.
Bill Ruffini was the high scorer and close on his heels were Dennis Balboni,
Dave Glass, and Brad Bishop. Brad led the team in rebounds averaging better
than ten a game, followed by Jimmy Corsi, who showed more improvement
than any other player on the team.
The first team was comprised mostly of seniors, and it is hoped that our second
team, next year's varsity squad, will be able to have as successful a season as
we did this year.

This year the Silver Lake J.V.'s had the best second team in the Old Colony
league. We won 15 games, and our only loss was a heartbreaker to Wareham.
This record shows that we have some fine ballplayers on this squad, many of
whom will be regulars for the first team next season.
The second team was no exception when it came to thrilling ballgames. Remem-
ber that thriller at Whitman which we won by only one point, and the Plymouth
game where Doug McAloney, the only senior on the team, rebounded and
scored the winning basket with only a few seconds remaining, to end his basket-
ball career at Silver Lake!
Donald Lopes was promoted near the end of the season and turned in fine
performances in the last few games for the first team. Other players who show
promise for the future are Danny Santos and Robert Stangehellini, juniors; Mike
Andrews, John Reilly, and Basil Wadsworth, sophomores, all of whom played in
a few first team games. We also had two freshmen, Paul Lopes and Herbie Jack-
son, who will be a big help in their remaining years at Silver Lake.

Dear Mr. Creighton:
I should like to commend the students of your school
who were in attendance at the Abington-Silver Lakes basketball
game 'Tuesday evening.
The courtesy of your individual students and the
sportsmanlike conduct of the entire group evoked considerable
praise from members of the Abington High School faculty and the
coaches. It is indeed a pleasure to be the host school for such

With gusto, remnants of the hockey teams from Pembroke and Kings-
ton, together with girls from Halifax, Plympton, and Carver, started the
hockey season this fall. Although our success can't be measured in
league standings, it can be measured in the many fun-filled hours spent
in playing field hockey, and our almost perfect record, no defeats and
only one tie game. May next year bring as much success in field hockey
as this one!

FIRST TE AM SCORES
The girls' basketball team rated high in spirit, aggressiveness, good sportsman-
ship, and the will to win, even in defeat. Although we never reached the win
column in our league, we did beat Hanover in a practice game. Under the very
capable leadership of our coach, Mrs. Bielski, and captain, Priscilla Deane the
team worked hard. We are very grateful to our manager, Maren Stoll, and as-
sistant manager, Carolyn Bersani, who did their jobs well.
The J.V.'s under the guidance of Mrs. Cingolani worked hard buildinq the
future basketball teams of Silver Lake.
By graduation the five first-team members will be overcome by the ardent
and persistent spirit of the underclassmen who were real contenders for varsity

The hour-long ceremonies highlighted a two-day "open
house" during which an estimated 10,000 visitors inspected
the huge educational plant. Many spoke highly of the job
done by regional authorities in building such a vast and well-
equipped school for $1 ,71 5,000.
About 900 showed up for the formal dedication Sunday.
The auditorium having a capacity of only 525, the overflow
heard the ceremonies over the school sound system in the
gymnasium, cafeteria and lobby. A joint police detail of of-
ficers from the four towns under Police Chief Al Lanzilotta
of Pembroke handled the heavy flow of traffic and assisted
guests in other ways.
Heading a group of distinguished speakers at the dedica-
tion was Senator Leverett Saltonstall, who said the school
represented the New England spirit of doing things together.
"When the American people un-
derstand a problem they usually
have no great trouble in solving
it, just as you folks here in Kings-
ton, Pembroke, Halifax and Plymp-
ton have proved in the way you
have all worked hard together to
make this fine high school possi-
ble. It is a splendid building in
itself but, even more importantly
perhaps, it is a great example of
what real community spirit means
and can do. You have worked hard,
hand in hand, for many months.
This regional high school is a real
achievement, a tribute to your co-
operation and your devoted effort
together," said the senator.
Chairman Horace C. Weston of
the Regional planning board pre-
sided at the ceremonies,, which
opened with the invocation by the
Rev. James F. Lai ly of Kingston.
Mr. Weston read a telegram of
congratulations from Governor
Mr. Weston described the school
as another monument to democracy
in action— a job well done, which
gives us renewed faith in the solu-
tion of problems in a democratic
Commissioner of Education John
Desmond said the building repre-
sented not a debt, but an invest-
ment in people, both now and in
the future. He said the building will
extend equality of educational op-
portunity to all, and will result im-
mediately in an increase in the per-
centage of pupils going through the
12th grade, as the school makes an
appeal because of its functional
form. He also predicted that the
school would mean an increase in
property values in the towns of the
A gold-plated master key fitting
all doors in the building was handed
from Abraham Schultz of the Jef-
ferson Construction Co. to Architect
Walter M. Gaffney to Chairman John
R. Farmer of the Regional School
committee to Supt. of Schools Ches-
ter T. Ray. In walking through the
completed building, said Mr. Gaff-
ney, there was only one thing mis-
sing—there was no "Our Miss
Brooks" or Mr. Conklin.
Chairman Farmer, in presenting
the key to Supt. Ray, spoke of the
many problems his committee of
"ten stouthearted men" had to solve
at meetings lasting until 2 a.m. "On
Sept. 19 between 900 and 1,000
kids will come thundering into this
citadel of education. The Lord help
you and bless you," he concluded,
handing the key to Mr. Ray.
Supt. Ray stated that part of his
job would be to make the building
a school and he said he would do
his utmost to make it one of the
best schools in Massachusetts.
Music during the ceremonies was
provided by the Silver Lake Girls'
choir, with Music Supervisor Ralph
Chouinard as director and organist.
The girls, dressed in maroon and
white robes, sang from the steps
which are built into the front of

members of the library club, under
guidance of Miss Doris E. Taber,
librarian, presented book reviews at
the elementary schools prior to the
book fair, to give the children some
idea of the books they would be
selecting. A large number of stu-
dents from the Silver Lake school
manned the tables and assisted as
sales clerks or in various other
capacities. Besides the large num-
ber of books available there were
tables displaying Christmas wrap-
pings, ribbons and cards, as well as
a wide variety of games. In connec-
tion with the Silver Lake School, a
'display of guns attracted a great
deal of attention, indicating the new

Lake cheers. Mr. MacFadgen had his
